Deloitte Foundation gift recognizes the power of creativity for social innovation
Sheridan is pleased to acknowledge the generous support of the Deloitte Foundation towards the Get Creative fundraising campaign. The Foundation has contributed $100,000, which will support the expansion of the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga. The new facility, set to open in 2016, epitomizes Sheridan’s Creative Campus approach, which is embedding creativity into every aspect of the Sheridan experience, from programs to facilities.
“Creativity underpins the development of new capabilities that can spur economic and social development, and attract talent and investment,” said Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, Sheridan’s President and CEO. “We are grateful for the vision of organizations like Deloitte, which recognize the importance of creativity and creative problem-solving skills in fostering both organizational competitiveness and community development.”
“Deloitte is pleased to support Sheridan’s focus on innovation and creativity, and is proud to honour their commitment to developing our leaders of tomorrow,” said Leila Fenc, Director, Corporate Responsibility, Deloitte and the Deloitte Foundation.
The Hazel McCallion Campus expansion is designed to facilitate multidisciplinary learning while also equipping students with the creative problem-solving skills that will help them adapt and thrive in their chosen careers. Sheridan’s creative approach transcends all of its academic disciplines, from problem-based learning in the technology and skilled trades programs, adventure learning in business, learning to identify and surmount obstacles in applied health and community services, to storytelling in the humanities or design thinking in the arts.
As one of Canada’s leading postsecondary institutions, Sheridan is home to 20,000 full time students, who study in over 120 diploma, certificate, and bachelor degree programs at four campuses in the West GTA. Its 140,000 alumni play a critical role in shaping the future of our society in the fields of arts, business, community service, health, technology and the skilled trades. Sheridan’s aim is to become Ontario’s first undergraduate, teaching university – one that is dedicated to applied and professional education, and distinguished by its Creative Campus approach.Pictured above: An architectural rendering of the HMC expansion in Mississauga.
